NSES Pre-School Program


  The North Stonington Public Preschool provides a learning environment that fosters communication, social competency, and learning readiness skills based on the Connecticut Early Learning and Development Standards. The preschool is for children with and without disabilities between the ages of three and five. Children without disabilities are selected by a lottery in early May and are encouraged to come in for an Early Childhood Screening. Children, who are identified as requiring special education services by a Planning and Placement Team (PPT), are offered a continuum of services that may include speech therapy, occupational therapy, and social skills instruction.

  The preschool is a five day per week program with two sessions. The A.M. session is 8:30-11:15 and the P.M. session is 12:10-3:10.

*Transportation is not provided. Parents must arrange for drop-off and pick-up.
